More frosty Winter Nights

Hello :)
Yup ,I'm one day late posting...sorry. I came off nightshift yesterday morning , had a bout 3 hours sleep, caught up with housework and some other things, cooked dinner and sat down on the sofa in front of the TV. Big mistake ! I got sleepy and instead of posting ,I forgot and went straight to bed. This morning I had the "oops" moment when I remembered. Ah well, I'm human , and not a machine.

Okay, let's start with art news. Did you ever want to learn about colors? About mixing ?
Over at you can do a free month long class (weekly tasks) in your own time. It started beginning of January, but better late than never. I just did week 1. All you need is the 3 primary colors (yellow, red ,blue ) and from these you will learn how to mix lots and lots of different colors and shades.
I just did my first color wheel and i's so much fun creating your own watercolor palette.
All these and more from just 3 colors.
Inkstruckstudio's 2018 Watercolor challenge continues with Food items for week 5 -theme Donut.
I get hungry looking at them :)
Week 4 theme was Squares.
I used metallic fluorescent paints and filled them with gold floral doodles.
 And the grey weather made me buy some daffodils. I wanted some color inside for a little spring feeling. I will take some close ups and try to paint them.

It's my weekend and I have lots of plans. How much of them I will actually get done remains to be seen.
I'll let you know next post ;)

For now it's Frosty Winter Nights time....
More backgrounds and elements

You have one more part coming next week and then ....well, I don't know about you, but I have the desire for some more colorful designs now. We have Valentines Day coming up and it's not long until Spring. So enough of winter and let's start a new season.

For those interested in knitting that patchwork blanket, I will also try to do some updates on that page soon.
Stay creative
Hugs Snowy

You're not the only one those donuts are making hungry!! I would love
a bag of donuts right about now. My favorites are the lemon filled and the glazed donuts.

Your art work is really coming along nicely. I'll be looking forward to paintings of the blooms in your garden soon. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
